  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • In order to make the Examiner to better understand the characteristics and the technical contents of the present invention, a description relating thereto will be made with reference to the accompanying drawings. However, it should be understood that the drawings are illustrative but not used to limit the scope of the present invention.
  • FIGS. 1, 2 and 3 are an exploded perspective view, an assembled perspective view and a cross-sectional view of the first embodiment of the air-conditioning device of the present invention, respectively. The present invention provides an air-conditioning device for pets. The device is used for air-conditioning the temperature within a pet house 4 (FIG. 6), providing the pet house with cool air or warm air, and adjusting to a suitable temperature, thereby to provide the pets with a comfortable environmental temperature. The device includes a casing 1, a cool/warm air conditioner 2 and an airflow-dividing valve 3.
  • The casing 1 is an elongated hollow body and constituted of a base 10 having a U-shaped cross section and an upper cover 11 disposed on the top of the base 10. The interior of the base 10 has an accommodating space 100 for receiving the cool/warm air conditioner 2. Further, both ends of the base 10 are open and in communication with the accommodating space 100, and thus they serves as an inlet and an outlet of the accommodating space 100, respectively. In addition, a plurality of supporting legs 13 is provided under the base 10 for supporting the casing 1. A handle 110 is provided on the upper cover 11, so that it is easily to carry the air-conditioning device.
  • The cool/warm air conditioner 2 is transversely provided in the accommodating space 100 of the casing 1, so that the accommodating space 100 is divided into a first flowing path 101 and a second flowing path 102 (FIG. 3). Further, the first flowing path 101 and the second flowing path 102 are in communication with the inlet and the outlet of the accommodating space 100, so that the first flowing path 101 and the second flowing path 102 are substantially two flowing paths parallel to each other. The cool/warm air conditioner 2 can be constituted of at least one thermoelectric cooling chip 20, a first heat-conducting body 21 and a second heat-conducting body 22 respectively adhered onto the cool and warm surfaces of the thermoelectric cooling chip 20. The first and second heat-conducting bodies 21, 22 can be used as heat dissipators, such as a heat dissipator made of aluminum extrusion, and are disposed in the first and second flowing paths, respectively. In this way, the thermoelectric cooling chip 20 can generate heat conduction to respectively cool or warm up the temperature of the first and second heat-conducting bodies 21, 22. For example, the first heat-conducting body 21 is brought into contact with the hot surface of the thermoelectric cooling chip 20, while the second heat-conducting body 22 is brought into contact with the cold surface of the thermoelectric cooling chip 20. In this way, the cool or warm temperature generated by the thermoelectric cooling chip 20 can be transferred in a form of airflow into the first and second flowing paths 101, 102 via the first and second heat-conducting bodies 21, 22, respectively.
  • According to above, the cool/warm air conditioner 2 is further provided at the first and second flowing paths 101, 102 of the accommodating space 100 with a first wind unit 210 and a second wind unit 220. The first and second wind units 210, 220 are located in the vicinity of outlet of the accommodating space 100 and each can be a fan for heat dissipation, such as a centrifugal fan, thereby to facilitate the generation of airflow within the first and second flowing paths 101, 102. Therefore, the air outside the casing 1 can enter via the inlet of the accommodating space 100 (FIG. 3), and pass through the first and second flowing paths 101, 102, respectively. Thereby, the cool and warm temperature distributed therein can generate a cool and a warm airflow respectively and then delivered to the outlet of the accommodating space 100. Further, a partition 121 can be provided between the first and second wind units 210, 220. The partition 121 serves as a continuation of the cool/warm air conditioner 2 and partitions the first and second flowing paths 101, 102 adjacent to the outlet of the accommodating space 100.
  • The airflow-dividing valve 3 is provided at the outlet of the accommodating space 100 of the casing 1 for delivering the cool airflow or warm airflow into the pet house 4 after being connected to an airflow conduit 400 (FIG. 6). In the present embodiment, the airflow-dividing valve 3 comprises a dividing plate 30 and a connecting pipe 31 pivotably provided onto the dividing plate 30. The dividing plate 30 is provided with a first air-supplying hole 301 and a second air-supplying hole 302 to correspond to the first and second flowing paths 101, 102 of the accommodating space 100, respectively. A central pivot 300 is positioned between the first and second air-supplying holes 301, 302. Further, one end of the connecting pipe 31 is provided with a blocking plate 310, and the other end thereof is open and provided with a connecting port 312. The blocking plate 310 is pivotably connected to the pivot 300 of the dividing plate 30. The blocking plate 310 is provided with a ventilating hole 311. When the connecting pipe 31 is pivotably connected to the dividing plate 30, the ventilating hole 311 will at least overlap with one of the first and second air-supplying holes 301, 302 (FIG. 4). Further, after turning the connecting pipe 31, the ventilating hole 311 will overlap with the other one of the first and second air-supplying holes 301, 302 (FIG. 5).
  • With reference to FIGS. 3 and 6, since the cool/warm air conditioner 2 can produce a cool and a warm temperature at the same time, and the cool and warm temperatures are transferred in a form of airflow into the first and second flowing paths 101, 102 via the first and second heat-conducting bodies 21, 22, respectively. Then, the first and second wind units 210, 220 deliver the cool and warm airflow generated in the first and second flowing paths 101, 102 to the first and second air-supplying holes 301, 302 of the airflow-dividing valve 3. The connecting port 312 of the airflow-dividing valve 3 is used to connect to one end of the airflow conduit 400 of the pet house 4, and the other end thereof is connected to the intake 40 of the pet house 4. With the above arrangement, the cool or warm airflow in one of the first and second flowing paths 101, 102 can be delivered into the pet house 4, thereby to achieve the effect of air conditioning. The cool or warm airflow in the other one of the first and second flowing paths is exhausted to the outside.
  • With reference to FIGS. 4 and 5, if the user intends to switch the cool airflow into the warm airflow or switch the warm airflow into the cool airflow, it is only necessary to turn the connecting pipe 31 of the airflow-dividing valve 3 to another valve position so as to easily achieve the switching operation of the cool/warm airflow. Therefore, an air-conditioning device capable of generating cool/warm airflow can be obtained.
  • Further, with reference to FIG. 3, in the present invention, a water-collecting trough 103 is further formed under the accommodating space 100 of the casing 1, which is formed by a water-dividing plate 12 transversely provided adjacent to the underside of the accommodating space 100. Draining holes 120 are provided on the water-dividing plate 12, so that the condensed droplets generated from the cool airflow in the second flowing path 102 can flow into the water-collecting trough 103 via the draining holes 120 on the water-dividing plate 12. Further, the underside of the base 10 is provided with a draining port 104 in communication with the water-collecting trough 103, thereby to facilitate the drainage of the collected water.
  • Further, as shown in FIG. 7, in order to efficiently utilize the circulation of airflow, the pet house 4 is provided with a ventilating port 41 connected to the inlet of the accommodating space 100 via another airflow conduit 401. Therefore, the cool or warm airflow delivered by the air-conditioning device can be delivered into the casing 1 again to directly use a cooler or warmer airflow to perform heat exchange, thereby to increase the heat-exchange efficiency.
  • Further, as shown in FIG. 8, it is a cross-sectional view of the second embodiment of the air-conditioning device of the present invention. The dividing plate 30 of the airflow-dividing valve 3 is provided with a pivoting portion 303 thereon for pivotably connecting onto one end of a valve position plate 313 that is able to swing on the dividing plate 30. The valve position plate 313 is located within the connecting pipe 31, and the other end thereof abuts against the inner wall of the connecting port 312, thereby to divide the interior of the connecting pipe 31 into two spaces. The connecting pipe 31 corresponds to the outlet of the accommodating space 100 for covering the outlet of the accommodating space 100 and communicating therewith. In this way, the airflow exhausted from the first and second air-supplying holes 301, 302 can be delivered into the two spaces of the connecting pipes 12, respectively. Further, the connecting port 312 of the connecting pipe 31 is provided with an exhausting port 314 to correspond to the first and second air-supplying holes 301, 302, respectively. Each exhausting port 314 is pivotably provided with a cover 315 for covering thereon. Therefore, the valve position plate 313 can adjust the valve position thereof to open the corresponding exhausting port 314 and close another exhausting port 314, so that the desired airflow can be exhausted via the connecting port 312.
  • Further, as shown in FIG. 9, it is a cross-sectional view of the third embodiment of air-conditioning device of the present invention. The airflow-dividing valve 3 also comprises two connecting pipes 32, 33. The two connecting pipes 32, 33 correspond to the first and second air-supplying holes 301, 302, respectively, so that one of the two connecting pipes 32, 33 can be selected to be connected to the pet house 4 for supplying the cool or warm airflow to the pet house 4. The airflow provided by the other connecting pipe is exhausted to the outside air directly, and vice versa.
  • Therefore, with the above structure, the air-conditioning device for pets of the present invention and the pet house having such air-conditioning device can be obtained.
  • According to the above, the present invention indeed achieves the desired effects and solves the drawbacks of prior art. Further, the present invention involves the novelty and inventive steps and conforms to the requirements for a utility model patent.
  • Although the present invention has been described with reference to the foregoing preferred embodiments, it will be understood that the invention is not limited to the details thereof. Various equivalent variations and modifications can still be occurred to those skilled in this art in view of the teachings of the present invention. Thus, all such variations and equivalent modifications are also embraced within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.
